London, Yorkshire, North East
I have worked in the Tourist Industry for some 30 years, firstly as a European Tour Manager, and now as a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide. I really enjoy working in London, a dynamic and continually changing city. That's why urban regeneration is one of my areas of interest.
Many of my clients are supporters groups of various sports, especially rugby, tennis, rowing and cricket. I regularly guide tours of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, The All England Lawn Tennis Club, Wimbledon and The Rugby Stadium, Twickenham.
I have experience working with school, college and university groups, organising and helping with their trips and educational programmes as well as professional and corporate groups.
I am happy to do tours by coach, mini-coach, public transport, car and on foot.
Special interests include: London's Olympic & Parlaympic Heritage, Tours with a sporting theme, Canary Wharf & London Docklands, King's Cross, Battersea & Nine Elms and Regeneration areas, London's Trading history, Coffee shops & their cultural development, Tea trade and drinking tea, The City of London and finance, St. Paul's Cathedral and churches. Methodist & Church groups, Multicultural London, Spitalfields and Brick Lane.
English Landscape gardens, Richmond Upon Thames, Twickenham and Kingston.
I am also a qualified Blue Badge Tour Guide for Yorkshire and Northumbria.
